Elevated above Kenai Lake and the circumambient peaks within the Chugach National Forest, Crown Point ATV trail offers picturesque views of the greater Kenai Lake Area. A small mountain glacier is clearly visible at the end of the trail and is as close as one can drive to Crown peak with great views of Solars Mountain across the mountainous glacial valley. Along the top portions of the trail, mining remains can be seen, including a large steel cable from an aerial tram, an old engine block, and other reminders of what happened here many decades ago.
Head south on the Seward Highway through Moose Pass to milepost 25 just after crossing over Trail River and at the Vagt Lake public access sign (a hiking trail to a stocked lake) bear east on Mine Road AKA Lower Trail Lake Road AKA Crown Point Mine Road. After crossing the railroad tracks, the road bends to the left, bear right before the bend completes to turn onto Crown Point Mine Road 343. The trail head is marked with a small sign.
Kyle has been into off-roading since getting his license at 16 and wheeling the family SUV (possibly without informing his parents of these wheeling trips in their vehicles). He graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with an Electrical Engineering degree. He lives in south-central Alaska and is raising his two young kids. Kyle stays busy year-round by working full-time as an Electrical Engineer who spends his weekends wheeling, hunting, fishing the local lakes, and raising his family. He is eager to share his love of the outdoors with others, especially when it involves a 4WD. His goal is to create an amazing resource for locals and travelers alike to enjoy the endless beauty Alaska has to offer while respecting the trails and keeping them open for years and generations to come.
